Happy New Year!
We will hear and say that all day today, and likely for the rest of the week. While, in truth, it's just another day, for most, it's a time of introspection, reflection, goal setting and the oh-so-(in)famous resolutions. Oh, every day is a new start, and we could make life changes at any time, but there seems to be something about changing the year on the calendar that makes us want to reflect and dig our heels in. Gym memberships will rise. People will flock in and either sign up or start using those memberships they let sit for most of the previous year. People will start diets, quit smoking, resolve to spend more time with family and less time at work. Any number of "resolutions" with the goal of becoming the person we want to be.
Unfortunately, for many these resolutions will fall by the way-side before the end of the month. For some, before the end of the week. Sometimes because it's not a goal, but merely a wish. If you're making resolutions today, change them to goals. Make a plan. Write it down. Tell people about it. Begin execution. Hold yourself accountable. Find someone, or a few someones, to help hold you accountable. Let 2015 be your best year yet!
What are your goals for this year? How will you make it happen?
